Last night (3/24/15) on CNN there was a special about atheism in America. I thought it did a very good job of pointing out the atheists out there who are trying to do good things, trying to show that atheism/humanism stands for just more than a negation. There was a particularly kind individual in Lousiana who was once a pastor who dedicated himself to helping others. Now he does exactly the same thing, but without God. What a great point. God is just not needed. All of the things that make us decent human beings, all of the things that are important, don’t require a deity or belief in an afterlife to be valuable. They are human-based concepts. Humanist values.
